Yellow nails + Blue eyes = Summer!

As you may know, I love experimenting with nail colors and really don't mind sporting the weirdest colors in this universe, unless of course it's depressing to look at.

This is the first time I tried a yellow and really loved it! The color I am wearing is by La Promise, something I picked up on a holiday in India. I have to say the color is a gorgeous shade of yellow.

It's high gloss finish avoids it from appearing flat, keeping the color appear vibrant. It's super bright to look at and keeps me cheered up throughout!

If you ignore the uneven pigmentation on my fingers, you will notice how pretty the color is.

Also the Indigo is also something I have been obsessively wearing since a week. This shade of blue is quite unusual. Its not one of those dreary dark blues, rather an ink blue which is pretty refreshing. This one's by La Promise too.

I have been feeling quite 'bright' recently. I guess the scorching sun is finally getting to me and I have been wanting to wear everything bright!

I have been avoiding wearing any eye shadow lately. I don't know why but I don't feel like loading the lids with much product in the summer really, which is quite unlike me!

I despise bare lids however, so I have been focusing on the lower lash line since then and playing with liners or using eye shadows as so to make the eyes stand out.

Here I used Eyeko's Graffiti Eyeliner Pen in Purple to line the upper lash line, Annabelle's Eyeshadow in blue to heavily line the lower lash line, followed by a hint of baby blue eye shadow sweeped right underneath it.

It may look too much to some but trust me it looks uber pretty in reality. A bit dramatic for day time of course, but oh well.

Don't stay away from trying colors this summer, go ahead and give it a go and it might leave you surprised.
